Críticas

"A casa ergue-se numa colina, nas proximidades de uma aldeia. Sobreviveu a pragas, foi habitada por várias gerações de uma família e, pedra sobre pedra, assistiu ao passar dos anos, das décadas e dos séculos. Tornou-se numa lenda, mas foi votada ao abandono, até que, no século XX, voltou a renascer. A casa das vinte mil histórias foi testemunha de mil e uma vicissitudes: felicidade e desgraça, celebrações e colheitas, guerra e paz..."
